Firefox is giving me serious headaches on my linux box. Please, don't suggest to use another browser, I want to use firefox.
Anyway: I have ALL my preferences set to open links in a new TAB, not window. Clicking on a link (from another program) opens it in a new window.
Under KDE, the window, if another firefox window was open, does NOT get focus, but just blinks in the taskbar.
I have both Gnome and KDE installed on my Gentoo system... and it seems like KDE is picking up "default browser" settings from the Gnome configuration. If I change the default browser in the Gnome config, KDE uses that. If I try to use kconfig to change it back, it doesn't listen.
What is going on?
My GOAL is to get Firefox set as the default browser under both, to open new links in tabs, and to gain focus on opening a link.
All thoughts welcome.
Edit: oh yeah. clicking links in Firefox works as expected: new tab.
